I installed them all again. While google play knew my apps, it did not automatically install them again. So pressing install on every app brought them back.

About backup, I found that the android sdk has a backup function that backups everything, installed apps as well, next them I use that, maybe this makes reinstallation of apps unnecessary.

Just press down on the app in your list. It will select, then click on all you want reinstalled. Then click install once.

You will have to click accept repeatedly. It's easy: same spot, just tap tap tap...
